Science fiction. Time travel. Four children and their grandmother trying to prevent a second civil war.

The Christmas Room

This is contemporary fiction, and the story has two endings.

The Basket – story in progress

I started writing a story for Easter 2021, intending to tell it all in two parts, but the story’s turning out to be longer.

Ruth – story in progress

Ruth started by accident. I needed some sample dialog for a post about writing, and ended up with a story.

The Choice

The Choice was my first piece of free fiction. It was posted in six very short parts in April 2020, and those are still way back in the archives, but I link only the full story here.

In Life – story in progress

Sci-Fi Fantasy. A young woman who has lost everyone she loves. A new world for her to discover. Will she find friendship and love, or will she encounter only misery, horror, and brutality?
